    Music Scholarships 
    Pocklington School awards a maximum of six scholarships annually, with three specifically intended for pupils joining the school at 13+, each valued at 5% of the day fee. Auditions will be held in the Lent term. Pupils interested in applying for a music scholarship should contact the Director of Music, to arrange an audition.

    Tenure of all Senior School Awards is for the duration of the pupil’s time at Pocklington School, subject to satisfactory performance and behaviour.

    Bursarial Assistance, to give further support to that provided by an award, may be available on a means tested basis. The school seeks widely to promote the awards. Families for whom a scholarship or exhibition would not provide sufficient funds for admission are encouraged to contact the Bursar.

    Sixth Form Bursaries

    A number of Sixth Form Bursaries are available to external or internal candidates and may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% of the tuition fees payable depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants.

    Applications will be considered from any young person who passes our academic entrance tests to the Sixth Form and who is deemed likely to benefit from the opportunities presented by Pocklington School.   Significant academic prowess is not, however, the only criterion, and applicants are encouraged to demonstrate artistic, sporting or musical ability to enhance the quality of their applications.

    Entrance tests for these applicants will take place in late February/early March.

    Potential applicants for Sixth Form Bursaries are encouraged to contact the Bursar, from whom further details are available.
